Some Key Highlights, Strategy & Improvements in addition to full Asset Management duties

Global Asset Solutions was involved in the project approximately two months before the opening of the hotel and assisted ownership in the final opening processes. In addition, some of the focus was based on:

  • Finalising all pre-opening works and realising the opening of the spa, the seventh-floor destination restaurant, the main Suite and the Cupola venue.
  • Monitoring the initial operation and structure in regard to clustered activities.
  • Driving revenues in line with seasonality and finding the optimum mix of rate and volume in the market at any time.
  • Implementing cost control procedures in order to be aligned with the budgeted bottom line.
